It’s my desire that The Peoria Chronicle be a free and open exchange of ideas. Therefore, I allow anyone to comment, either under his or her own name or a pseudonym (anonymously). However, there are naturally some limits to this policy. Here they are:
- You are responsible for your comments; I am not. Information and opinions published in the comments section of The Peoria Chronicle, as well as the content of guest editorials (those posts written by individuals other than the blog owner, C. J. Summers) are the views of the commenter or post author only and do not necessarily reflect my views.
- Other than an automated spam filter, I do not pre-screen comments before they are posted. Thus, if I find that you’ve left any libelous comments, they will be deleted without notice and you may be banned from leaving any future comments. I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason.
- Anyone who feels they’ve been libeled may contact me. I or my lawyer will examine the claim and, if the statement meets the standard of libel, I will remove it.
- Be kind and respectful of others. Your argument is more persuasive when you debate the issue instead of engaging in personal attacks. The goal here is civil discourse.
- Always show proper respect to the ten-time World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals.
- The content on this site (including your comments) is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States license.
- This is a family blog, so please keep your language clean.
- Anyone identified by the blog owner as an Internet troll will be banned.
Okay, now that you know the rules, get out there and join the discussion!
